Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Once again, I apologize for the lack of posts on my blog. Ever since I got sick at the beginning of the month, I have been choosing my books by my mood, therefore I haven’t read a lot of ARCs that need to have reviews posted this month, or are backlist books that I have purchased. However, I have three reviews going up next week to make up for it!
Anyways, I have purchased a few books this month that I am super excited to read and want to share with you! Since the beginning of 2019, I haven’t purchased many books since I have received a lot of ARCs from many different publishing houses. However, I have had my eye on a few books and decided to purchase all of them at Indigo over the past two weeks!

The first book I purchased this month is “Daisy Jones & The Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I had heard SO many amazing things about this book and decided to purchase it for 40% off at Indigo! I have since read it and posted a mini review of it (along with “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo”), which you can read here!
The next book I purchased is “The Astonishing Color of After” by Emily X.R. Pan. I am a HUGE Books&Lala fan, and have heard spectacular things about this book from her, along with many other BookTubers and bloggers. When I noticed that this was the last paperback version on the shelf at Indigo, I thought that was a sign that I should buy it, since I have wanted to read it for a while! I am SO excited to read this one, and hope to get to it very soon!
The third book I purchased is “One of Us is Lying” by Karen M. McManus. I read Karen’s second book “Two Can Keep A Secret” earlier this year and quite liked it, and since I have been wanting to read YA thrillers, I thought this would be a great one to read! According to some of my bookish friends, this one is better than her first one, so I am very excited to see if my opinion follows the popular opinion!
The last book I purchased this month is “Opposite of Always” by Justin A. Reynolds. This book was featured at HCC Frenzy’s: Frenzy Presents, and I have been wanting to read it ever since! While I haven’t heard the best things about this book, I have been really intrigued by it and definitely want to form my own opinions. I am currently reading this one right now, and will share my full thoughts in my March Wrap-Up!
The first ARC I received this month came from Penguin Teen Canada, and it just so happens to be my most anticipated release of the Summer! This book is called “Screen Queens” by Lori Goldstein. I love books about fierce females making their way into the technology industry, and I am so incredibly excited to read this one! Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada for the ARC!
Lastly, I received a huge package from Hachette Book Group Canada filled with a lot of late Spring/early Summer releases! These are the books in this stack:
- “Differently Normal” by Tammy Robinson
- “Guilty” by Laura Elliot
- “Amelia Westlake Was Never Here” by Erin Gough
- “When We Were Lost” by Kevin Wignall
- “Teeth In The Mist” by Dawn Kurtagich
- “There’s A Word for That” by Sloane Tanen (I featured this one in my Spring 2019 5-Star Predictions!)
Those are all of the books I acquired this month! What are some of the books you bought or received this month?!
Good Night Book Owls!
